One’s an Australian Idol runner-up named as a game-changer by Vogue Australia magazine. The other’s a Let’s Dance winner who loves sharing pictures of delicious pasta on his Instagram story. But now Australia’s Jessica Mauboy and Sweden’s Benjamin Ingrosso have something in common: They’re the favourites to win Semi-Final 2 of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon on May 10, according to bookmakers UNIBET

They top the odds at 7/4. Australia has an excellent track record at Eurovision, placing second in 2016 and Sweden’s reliably impressive stage show should light up the arena in every sense of the phrase. Returning Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak rounds out the top three on 7/2. The Netherlands and Denmark round out the top 5 favourites to win Semi-Final 2 on 5/1 and 14/1 respectively.

The top ten is completed by Russia, Lativa, Ukraine, Georgia and Hungary. You can see full results below:

SEMI-FINAL 2 ODDS TO WINS

SEMI-FINAL 2 ODDS TO QUALIFY

For many countries however, the main priority is making it into the Grand Final, and worrying about winning once you got there. So for them the odds to qualify matter more.

If the current odds are replicated in May these ten countries will qualify from Semi-Final 2: Sweden, Australia, The Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Denmark, Latvia and Serbia.

That means Moldova, Hungary, Romania, Georgia, Malta, Slovenia, Montenegro and San Marino are out.

The non-qualifiers currently include perennial qualifiers Hungary and Romania. It would also mean a second year in the semis for Malta.

Full Odds to Qualify are below, with countries set to qualify marked in bold:

Sweden 1.05
Australia 1.08
Netherlands 1.08
Norway 1.14
Russia 1.2
Ukraine 1.2
Poland 1.3
Denmark 1.44
Latvia 1.5
Serbia 1.6
Moldova 1.85
Hungary 1.9
Romania 1.9
Georgia 3
Malta 3.5
Slovenia 3.5
Montenegro 4
San Marino 8

The announcement of running order this morning is likely to shake things up on betting markets so keep your eyes peeled for more odds updates soon.

Also seeing how the juries gave them an enormous set of points last year while receiving only 2! from the televoting makes me angry, I admit. I feel like they are cheating at the blockstarts.

That was only last year. There was a massive discrepancy between the points.There wasn’t a big difference in jury and televote the previous two years. I think Jessica will get more televotes than the mess last year.

Why the hell is Latvia doing quite well with the betting odds to qualify? Personally I think it’s a definite NQ. I think either Ukraine, Sweden, or Australia will win this semi but I don’t think any of the semi final 2 songs will win Eurovision.

Predictable odds…Sweden could send a blue and yellow cow and still qualify. Australia will get through thanks to juries…Ukraine through on teen/gay vote…Denmark qualifying thanks to GoT, LoTR, Viking fans….Russia in thanks to sympathy votes….the rest are less predictable…much depends on live staging/delivery. Not a big fan of most songs in this semi…Semi one so much better!

WTH about the article that was deleted.
People just have to be salty over an article of young girl reacting. You don’t like it, skip on. Keep your jealousy and hate for yourselves please.

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

The comments were about the post not the song, it’s called FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Is that not as important as empowering woman.

Darren
Guest
Darren

Empowering woman is so cool right now though
Freedom of speech is so post-soviet…gawd!

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

Darren really? I would expect better from you. I’m sure if you were not able to have this freedom we have today, you would want it. Besides women empower themselves they don’t need a comic song to remind them of that. Toy rhymes with boy and that’s it. Most so called “messages” in ESC songs are just fantasy to help the song.

Darren
Guest
Darren

I was agreeing with you Eugene. Of course I would put freedom of speech above everything and I believe I need equality for all but in ESC 2018 female empowerment is the go to topic this year. Israel is doing it, Australia tried to do it, but it’s just a cheap marketing ploy to promote the song, get the people on side and for the song then I be real relevant.

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

Wiwibloggs obviously does not believe in freedom of speech as much as empowering woman it seems.

William posted an article about the Israeli entry being watched by some pre-teen girls in the US, it looked very staged. It got a lot of negative comments and several comments were deleted. Now they have removed the WHOLE post.

Shameful, a new low for Wiwibloggs

If you search by country “Israel” it says 404 page not found!!

Malin
Guest

Was there comments about the young girls? Then perhaps it was a god thing to remove the article?

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

Malin :- The girls were watching the “Toy” video with a Wiwibloggs interviewer in the US and commenting on the song lead by the interviewer and the song being about empowering women.

Some of the comments were directed at William and the overhyping of the Israeli entry.

Malin
Guest
Malin

Ok, but if William or other at wiwibloggs thougt that the critical views were right. Was it not good if they removed the article?

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

Freedom of Speech Malin, you have to take the good with the bad. If you post something, you should accept the consequences.You should not remove it because readers do not like it.

Gobio
Guest
Gobio

There were a few, but I think that specifically in this case it’s important to moderate your comments even more considering the circumstances and the fact that the girls can read.
Overall, just try to be positive.

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

I guess you do not understand the concept of freedom of speech Gobio. I write on here as a reader and not for any Eurovision site as I want to give my opinion whether it is positive or negative without censorship and that includes being controversial as you have to tow the line writing for ESC sites.

Malin
Guest
Malin

I could start a blogg were I promote some artists. Wiwibloggs are not representing media i general. They are free to act hos they want. So are you and I if we start a blogg. And if prople write things we don’t like on our blog, well then we are free to erase it. Calm down : )

@EugeneESCUK
Guest

Malin :- You should google the meaning of media!!!!!!!

Dan
Guest

To be fair, Malin has a point. It’s not like Wiwibloggs is “media” in the traditional sense. It’s a group of (very) passionate fans creating content.

you can still watch the video on youtube. i don’t know what the comments were. for me it’s hard to watch. i just see a school discussion and i’ve outgrown that a bit.
the Israeli song is just fun pop song, i don’t think it’s as controversial as Israel wants it to be. To me as a man being harrassed by his female boss, the whole #metoo movement is actually quite hypocrite. We’re all people and power changes you. Gender has nothing to do with that…..

Erasmus

Thank you! I hate metoo movement because of that, and that video just makes me sick, thanks god that most of Europe isn’t on USA level of those kind of opinions. And I also think Netta wasn’t thinking in that way at all. Those girls shouldn’t listen to “Hollywood” stars, because all they know is money. They should listen to their self, I mean one girl said that she was harrased because she was playing basket as a girl, I agree that’s not right, but it’s also not right that boys are harrased when they want to dance, I know… Read more »

I just watched the video and I agree with Eugene that it seemed to be staged. I find it very hard to believe that 11,12 year old kids would say these sort of things unless (a. They have staunchly feminist parents or (b. They were told to say those sort of things by Suzanne. So many strawmen and so many stories that make me think of poorly written Hollywood movies than (presumably) middle school in 2018.

I see Poland & Ukraine will help Hungary. Ukraine is not Eastern Group again & stand with Central Europe with Poland & Hungary also Georgia & Slovenia.

So Central Europe & Ex Yugoslavia Country + Georgia will help each other.

My prediction of chances to qualify at this time:
Australia ~100%, Sweden ~100%, Ukraine ~100%, Norway 95%, Neth. 90%,

That will never happen (hope they don’t leave) but Sweden lives for Eurovision and they are a wealthy country that continue to score top results. They won’t leave, even if SVT is struggling another broadcaster would take over.

Sweden Will win This semi, Russia and Ukraine Will round up the top 3. This is the more diffucult semi I think, a lot of these entries work better live (Moldova, Romania, Latvia, Malta and Hungary for example)

Because the song has more depth and musicality than anything that Australia has sent in the last 3 years. Yes, I am Australian and I’m throwing shade at my own country.

I think Moldova will be instead Latvia in final.

The odds are based on winning and not qualifying though. A song like Hungary won’t win but it’ll sure qualify.

Since I only like Australia and I think Slovenia and Sweden are okay, for me anything else that goes through in this semi is basically forgettable.

And because it’s such a weak SF, I think it is more difficult to predict who will manage to get through..

Well…. no matter who wins , they all gonna loose at the final , this semi is gonna fill the whole right side of the scoreboard.

It’s just sad to think that a song like FYROM’s would have easily reached top 5 (if not 3) in this semi but probably not qualify in semi 1 🙁
